When it comes to prepping for summer, skincare isn’t typically top of mind for men — but the change in climate can bring strife to the skin that should be attended to. With Bevel‘s foray into skincare products for men of color, the grooming company’s newest venture will provide a bit of relief to help users achieve their skin’s best texture and appearance.

The line of four products can be easily integrated into an existing shaving routine or can act as a starting point for skincare novices. The line promises to help bring equilibrium with a set of four easy-to-use products that complement Bevel’s end-to-end Shaving System and product shave formulations. Here, we break down a simple cleansing and moisturizing routine that addresses hyper-pigmentation and oily skin with products that are free of alcohol parabens, phthalates, sulfates, dyes, silicones or artificial fragrances.

First up in the line is the Bevel Face Wash. Starting with an effective cleanser is imperative to removing caked-on dirt from the day or providing a refreshing start to the morning. Summer months may have your skin glowing, but the glow is actually an overproduction of oil, which can lead to irritation and breakouts. With the grooming label’s face wash, the product works to brighten skin — creating an overall healthier appearance — by reducing irritation and unclogged pores. Witch hazel extract acts a natural astringent decreasing oil production alongside tea tree oil which creates that post-wash tingle with the added benefits of topical antiseptic and antifungal properties. Coconut water and Vitamin B3 moisturize and tone the skin while reducing fine lines and enlarged pores.

After the wash, the 10% Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Toner balances and exfoliates the skin using four key ingredients: glycolic acid, aloe vera, witch hazel extract, and Vitamin B3. The toner removes dead skin, decreasing the likelihood of ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and acne. The formula’s aloe and glycolic acid work to moisturize and balance uneven textures.

People of color are prone to experiencing hyperpigmentation due to the melanin in their skin. When exposed to sunlight, the body’s natural function is to produce the natural pigments, thus causing for exacerbation of dark spots. Bevel’s Spot Corrector is fortified to prevent this natural occurrence while reducing scarring from shaving and acne. This is achieved through a special blend of 9% lactic acid, vitamin C, shea butter and green tea extract. When applied, the skin is gently exfoliated to remove scarred layers then hit with a cocktail that provides non-greasy, soothing moisture.

It’s a common misconception that oily skin doesn’t need to be hydrated, but it’s quite the opposite. Heat robs the skin of essential water that helps keep its elasticity and freshness. The Moisturizing Face Gel replenishes hydration while calming the skin’s production of natural oil. With vitamin C, algae extract, vitamin E and manuka honey, the skin will look smoother and be protected from breakouts and redness.

 After showcasing the shark-inspired SQUALO sneaker earlier this year, Versace’s Salehe Bembury drops off a first look at the fashion house’s upcoming footwear collection for Spring/Summer 2020. On the heels of the fashion house’s Milan Fashion Week showcase, two drastically varying silhouettes were teased on Instagram.

 One of the models includes an all-black tactical boot, with Versace’s iconic Greek key pattern wrapped along the shaft. The outer sole includes an eye-catching tread pattern with a hidden embossed face in red. The second footwear takes on a lighter approach both in color and design. The silhouette retains the streamlined feel of the SQUALO on the midsole, while the upper embraces sleek overlays with shades of bright pink. Gianni Versace’s signature along the side also adds an elevated feel to overall sneaker, while subtle branding along the lace hooks and pull tab solidify it as a signature Versace piece.


No click bait I swear.

 Nike has unveiled the 2019 lineup for its progressive Zoom series, this time around featuring the Air Zoom Pegasus 36, Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2, Zoom Fly 3 and ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%.

The focus of each silhouette is speed, and all four sneakers will release in a Nike-only version of neon green, dubbed “Nike Phantom Glow.” The colorway generates a glowing effect that will be unique to these four models, which each feature touches of yellow, orange, white and black.

First up is the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36. The flagship sneaker returns to 2019 with a reengineered mesh construction that features perforations around high-heat areas. The heel collar and tongue are slimmer than before, making for a more supportive fit, and the shoe is rounded off with its much-loved Cushlon foam-encased, full-length Zoom Air unit.

The Zoom Pegasus 2 features a lighter transparent construction that is paired with lofted mesh and midfoot bands to lock in the foot securely at high speeds. Nike has given the sneaker a clean white sole unit and a contrasting outsole in a retro-running-themed gum hue.

Next, Nike has reworked the Zoom Fly to also be lighter, applying a transparent upper to its React midsole for a more responsive ride. Incorporating a full-length carbon-fiber plate in the sole unit for heightened responsiveness and a new arch-band lacing system that offers a more adjustable fit, the sneaker comes together as one to minimize Achilles strain and protect wearers from road impact.

Rounding off the 2019 Zoom Series is the previously seen ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%. This is the Swoosh’s most advanced offering for 2019, having been co-developed with the help of top Nike athletes. The Swoosh has constructed the upper from a new fabric called Vaporweave, which is lighter and less absorbent than Flyknit. 15% more Nike ZoomX foam was added to the sole unit for increased energy return and the entire shoe was reworked to be more stable under pressure.

Take a look at all four pairs in the gallery above and pick up your favorite pair as a NikePlus member on June 13, then globally on July 11 at select Nike stockists.

 With releases like the Air Max Tailwind 4 and Air Max 98 in the “Desert Fade” colorway among its recent drops, Nike continues to pull from the elements of nature for its upcoming Air VaporMax Plus, which is entitled simply “Desert Sunset.” Reflective of the sneaker’s moniker, the brand blends together the colors of the twilight to present a vibrant ombré design.

The shoe is defined by a gradient treatment along the upper, which transitions from shades of purple into yellow, orange and “Bright Crimson” tones. Black details provide a dark contrast throughout, including the laces, midsole and the plastic webbed overlay that makes up the signature curved lines on the side panel. Finally, Nike adds hints of “Reflective Silver” through the Swoosh logos and gives the style an all-black outsole to round it off.

No word on the pricing or release date for the Air VaporMax Plus “Sunset” as of yet, so stay tuned for its release in the future from retailers such as NOIRFONCE.
